Food & Drink: Tips & Tricks
We all know that cooking with onions and garlic makes food taste delicious and it it's good for your health, but the smell that they leave behind on your hands is not so nice.
There are a few tricks that you can do to make your hands smell normal again.
1. Rub your hands on something made of Stainless Steel, like the blunt edge of your knife, silverware, or your sink while your hands are under cool running water.
2. Use coffee grounds like soap and rub them in your hands under cool running water.
3. Baking soda is known for it's getting rid of odors. Take a small amount in your hands, add enough water to make a paste, and rub your hands together then rinse with cool water. This is also good for exfoliating your skin.
4. You can also use lemon and salt. Make a paste and rub your hands together then rinse with cool water. This has the added benefit of exfoliating. But I would be sure not to use this on if you have a cut or cracked skin!
I have also heard of using peanut butter or toothpaste to get rid of the smell, but I have never used either of those.
